Phew!! Short sharp swim of 650m. Conditions were perfect – high tide, calm conditions and a short swim to allow time for the Christmas barbecue.
Hayden Squance took off at the start, veering slightly more to the right, to open up a lead on the first leg south and holding it to the finish to win from Nic Hall by ten seconds.
Abbey Smale, Ben Marshall, Isabella Thurlow, Austen Dean and Fenn Anderson were next to finish.
Christina Harris was the third woman, finishing in 11th place, just ahead of Flossie Van Dyke.
